STUDY DESIGN The use of a cell-seeded biomatrix for tissue engineering of the intervertebral disc. OBJECTIVE To evaluate the ability of a biomatrix to support the viability of intervertebral disc cells and to accumulate the extracellular matrix that they produce. SUMMARY OF BACKGROUND DATA Intervertebral disc degeneration is a common occurrence during adult life that has adverse economic consequences on the health care system. Current surgical treatments are aimed at removing or replacing… CONTINUE READING
